Get to know me:

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, focused on trauma informed care. I have lived in Spokane, WA for the past 10 years after growing up in the Midwest. Since starting my practice as a therapist, I have been drawn to helping people process through past experiences that had a present hold on them and were unsure on how to move forward into their future. I believe that our mental health impacts all parts of ourselves and our lives. My hope with working with clients is that I can help them heal and grow.

What struggles am I most skilled at addressing as a mental health professional?

  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Depression
  • LGBTQIA+ Issues
  • PTSD and C-PTSD
  • Trauma-Related Disorders
  • Religious Trauma

What populations do I work with?

I work with teens and adults in-person and via Telehealth.

What is my approach to healing?

I’ve used evidenced-based modalities in my practice including Cognitive-Behavior Therapy Plus (CBT+), including Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and have been trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). Whichever modality is used, I met my clients wherever they are at with a Rogerian approach. Offering client focused care and unconditional positive regard to help build an environment for my clients to process through some of the scariest times of their lives for them to become in control of their experiences rather than their experiences controlling them and to help become the person they were meant to be.
